Hanken’s 110th anniversary festivities and NoCo art exhibition opened

Hanken School of Economics 110th anniversary is celebrated with the opening of an art exhibition which consists of a selection of artworks from NoCo (Nordic Contemporary Art Collection).

The art pieces are on display in the Hanken main building in Helsinki.

- The artworks chosen for the exhibition represent values that are important for Hanken, such as high quality, openness, sustainable development and Nordic identity. Through NoCo we want to introduce creative thinking in the everyday life at Hanken, which in turn will lead to reflection with an impact on the learning process, says Rector Karen Spens.

The art exhibition Nordic Contemporary Art Collection (NoCo) is a part of Hankens Art in Residence (AiR) project. The collection consists of exciting and innovative artwork by both established and internationally well-known artists, but also by young and developing talents.

-We hope that the works will inspire to dialogue and encourage to an academic debate about the influence that culture has on the economic development, Spens continues.

The NoCo exhibition can be experienced until February 2020 and brochures about the artworks can be borrowed from the reception.

The anniversary festivities will take place throughout the year until April 2020 and the theme of the events is creativity. The art exhibitions are central in the festivities, the NoCo exhibition in Helsinki and Pro Artibus exhibition which will open at Hanken in Vaasa in September.
